It was in 2000 when the technopop group, Perfume, was formed at the Actor’s School Hiroshima (広島) with current members Yuka Kashino (樫野有香) or “Kashiyuka,” Ayaka Nishiwaki (西脇綾香) or “A-chan,” and Ayano Omoto (大本彩乃) or “Nocchi” comprising the group. Two years after that, on March 21, 2002, they debuted their first single in Hiroshima entitled “OMAJINAI☆Perori.”
Now that it’s 2017, 15 years have passed since Perfume’s first single debut. So in order to commemorate the special event, the group is finally giving in to the request of their many fans – to produce an original perfume.

Perfume fans have waited for it, and now it has finally arrived! The originally produced 「PERFUME OF PERFUME」 (Japanese only) will go on sale at selected Isetan Mitsukoshi (伊勢丹三越) Group malls from March 21, 2017. Since it’s a unisex fragrance, it is fit for all male and female fans of the group. The scent was also based on the aroma oil that the members put on before they go live on stage for their performances.
The scent of the perfume starts off with a fresh mix of grapefruit and ylang-ylang, which is then followed by a floral note of lavender and rose, finally turning to a sweet and spicy scent of cloves for the perfect finish. The perfume is contained in a slim bottle, which was selected by the members themselves, and it comes with a pouch so you can easily bring it with you anywhere you go. The packaging’s design will also surely remind you of the technopop group. 「PERFUME OF PERFUME」 will be available in 10mL bottles and will be sold for 3,000 each (tax included).
Perfume has been performing under the spotlight for more than a decade and a half now and there is no doubt that this group has made it far in their career thanks to their hip and lively music.
